It’s unusual that at least two of this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees — “Philomena” and “Dallas Buyers Club” — deal with gay or transgender identity, even if neither film has a wholly LGBT protagonist. Both, naturally, are among the films singled out for recognition in the GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Defiance Against Defamation) Media Awards, Joining them, unsurprisingly, were “Blue is the Warmest Color” and “Kill Your Darlings,” though “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” isn’t exactly an obvious call. (“Frozen” would fit the bill too, though they haven’t gone there.)

Below are nominees in the principal film and TV categories; you can check out the full list, with nominations for journalism, blogs, comic books and more, here. Keep up with the season thus far at The Circuit.
